Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Introduction to Bridge Components , you'll learn ...

  • Types of bridges and the primary components of a bridge
  • The purpose and function of the substructure, bearings, superstructure and decks
  • Materials, shapes and connection types used in bridge construction
  • Types of connections used to transfer loads between members
